For 2021 - online Python 3 training - see ((here)).

Our plans were to retire in summer 2020 and see the world, but Coronavirus has lead us into a lot of lockdown programming in Python 3 and PHP 7.
We can now offer tailored online training - small groups, real tutors - works really well for groups of 4 to 14 delegates. Anywhere in the world; course language English.

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python 2, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc.
reading windows event logs

Posted by mikemen (mikemen), 29 July 2005
Does TCL have any commands that I can use to read windows event logs entries?
If so, what are they?

Some URLs for you:

This is the TWAPI extension to Tcl that's available for download from Sourceforge.

The command that reads an event log in this extension is eventlog_read.

Access to the event log requires a handle returned by the eventlog_open command. A handle allows either read or write access, but never both. Events can then be read from an event log through the eventlog_read command. The returned event record can be formatted using eventlog_format_message and eventlog_format_category.
